Therefore when all is said and done the deal once the waiver claim goes through could be:

Clb: Luongo/Higgins

Yet again before people go blasting the trade. Is is merely for argument sake not what I would propose. But it is a way that Vancouver could work around the Luongo NTC is pressure him into accepting a deal to another team. Nobody wants to go to Clb right now, but Vancouver holds all the cards if they want to leverage this option!!!
Lol that would be a low blow and pretty disrespectful of Vancouver management to do a hidden trade in order to go around the NTC. It could certainly be done but I think it would just create another Nabokov/Islanders-Detroit fiasco
